NSPCC Whistleblowing Advice Line (Feb 16)
If you are a professional with concerns over how child protection issues are being handled in your own or another organisation, you can talk to the NSPCC anonymously on its new Whistleblowing Advice Line (0800 028 0285).
The advice line provides free help and advice to those who suspect their organisation might be putting children at risk, even if they are not certain that this is the case. Professionals can call the advice line about an incident that happened in the past, is happening now, or that you believe might happen in the future.
The advice line isn’t intended to replace any current practices or responsibilities of organisations working with children. Professionals will be encouraged to raise any concerns about a child to their own employer in the first instance.
More information and resources on the helpline are available on the NSPCC website.
